A pleasant surprise arrived at The Book Attic when Lilian Thoring read about the shop in
Ming Pao magazine. Lilian lives in Sweden but is originally a Hong Konger – and was
impressed by The Book Attic after reading the article. She made a long distance call to
Jennifer, and shortly afterwards came to visit when she and her family were in town. Mr. &
Mrs Thoring kindly brought us a book for our first poetry reading in March: a collection
by Tomas Tranströmer, the Nobel Prize winning poet. The collection includes a variety of
beautiful translations of Tranströmer’s works and will certainly be a wonderful component
of our March poetry club.
Thank you so much Mr. & Mrs. Thoring, we hope you'll come visiting us again soon!
to bring you poetry that you like or composed to read and share them with all poetry lovers
in this event. Foreign languages poems are welcome.
